"Ken and Judy Lee didn't think anyone would be interested in hearing their recordings...

Between the years 1970 and 1971, Ken worked security at The Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, New York, while his girlfriend Judy ran movie projections between sets. One of a few live music taping enthusiasts of the time, Ken was granted exclusive permission by club promoter Howard Stein to record the shows at the theatre for his own personal use. Judy was on hand to perform the tape flips while Ken was busy doing his job.

In 1968, the couple took Judy's brother Mark, who was nine years old to his first concert at "Cafe Wha?" in New York City. The Monkees were on tour and Jimi Hendrix was along for the ride as their opening act.

Several years later, Mark was introduced to the music of the Grateful Dead at the Nassau Coliseum on March 19th, 1973 in Uniondale, Long Island. This single event marked the beginning of a life long odyssey of musical experiences with the band that affected him most deeply. Along with his good friend, John Jay Hance, who Mark met at a Dead show in 1979, the two traveled around the United States with the band in search of the ultimate musical experience, attending over 350 shows together. The two also shared a common interest in seeing live music of a wide variety of genres, and during the 23 years that they knew each other attended more than 1000 total concerts together, until Mark's untimely death in November of 2002.

Mark knew of brother in-law Ken's recordings from the Capitol Theatre, and had a strong interest in having the shows circulated; however, being true to his word to Howard Stein, Ken kept the recordings under wraps and the tapes never saw the light of the trading domain (One noteworthy bending of this rule occurred when Ken agreed at Mark's request to circulate the late show that the Grateful Dead did on June 24th of 1970. This show is highly regarded as an all-time magical performance by the Dead during their 30 year history as a band)"

And thats just the EARLY show... Don't forget the late show too.

http://www.archive.org/details/gd70-03-21.late.aud.5316.sbeok.shnf

Electric-1: Casey Jones, Dancin' In The Streets, Easy Wind Acoustic: Friend Of The Devil, Deep Elem, Don't Ease Me In > Black Peter, Wake Up Little Susie > Uncle John's Band, Katie Mae

Electric-2: Cosmic Charlie, St. Stephen > Not Fade Away > St. Stephen jam > China Cat Sunflower jam > jam> Not Fade Away, Has Anybody Seen My Gal tuning, Midnight Hour > Turn On Your Lovelight, And We Bid You Goodnight

This show is just insane! It gets overlooked due to sound quality issues, but if you are up to it the show is well worth checking out. A rowdy Port Chester crowd (who's mantra seems to be "SIT DOWN! SHUT UP!") prompts Jerry to call them a "bunch of animals"
Weir before Deep Elem: "Why don't everyone turn to their neighbor and insult them as worse as you possibly can?"
The Dead proceed to kick some ass.Don't miss Easy Wind and Dancin' In The Streets and the entire second electric set. A great show!

Yep, thanks for the reminder. Early show just ended, time to start #2.

I like when Bobby says something like they don't really have names for all the songs yet so when you are yelling out names it is just meaningless words . . .

Classic

I mentioned the Easy Wind and Dancin In The Streets in my last post and just noticed they are not available on this stream which is too bad...however the entire show rocks and the sound quality of the late show is MUCH better than the early show. There is a torrent that circulates with the whole late show that the Port Chester Restoration Project folks put out that is worth tracking down. Very clean recording from the Aud Master tapes.
A good sign in deciding whether or not to take a chance on a show is when they end the show with We Bid You Goodnight. Always a sure sign of a classic set!

Too bad about the missing tunes, but the quality is pretty darn good for 1970 AUD. Read the notes about Ken the taper, pretty good story.

Yeah, thank you that great story and for both of these smoking sets. And general thanks to the forum. What I mean is, for example, 1970 is not the first year I gravitate to, and in recent years I've become a bit of an official release/soundboard snob (just because there are so many good ones out there) ... but I've spent just a little time in these forums just in the last couple of days, and y'all have turned me on to a lot of insanely energetic, high-quality audience recordings. These two, and the amazing new FOB 03-09-81, are definite keepers.

That 06-24-1970 is here too. I didn't know about it before this but I'll be hearing it tonight.

That is cool, thanks for the details.

I had only heard the kick-butt version they did in 1966 (it's on the 1966 Rarities & Oddities collection of live and studio stuff.)

Still searchin' for live '65 Warlocks...
